Subject: very nice, i like!
Great mix, Hunter's Matrixes are best listened to through headphones, it makes you feel as if you are in attendance at the show, minus the sights and smells of course.

As usual for Hunter's matrixes as well, each band member/instrument is represented equally in the mix and the vocals are mixed in perfect too.

Jerry is certainly on this night as he is ripping at any and every chance. His tone is crisp, clear, loud and up front. LOVE IT. Brent is represented nicely and Phil is thumping away, Bobby's little 'tic-tac' rhythms as I have always liked to call them are great and his slide work always adds a lot to the sound IMO. The Rhythm Devils are doin' their thing and holdin' it down and their power is often overlooked IMO. Bobby's, Brent's and Jerry's vocals have great tone and aren't ear piercing and high pitched as they can sometimes come out in other taper's mixes when you really have it turned up loud in your car or headphones.

Anyway, this is a must listen and is the best recording of this show as far as I'm concerned.

The Cleveland show from 3/2/81 is also a good one, check that out.

This show starts off monstrously with one of the best first sets I've heard in a looong time. Just a really awesome listen all the way through. The sound quality of this is spectacular. Silky smooth ride.
